The bleak winter months can leave skin looking below par. Wind, low humidity, central heating and comfort eating all have an effect. It loses moisture and the essential oils that keep it hydrated and healthy. Texture becomes rough, uneven and irritated, whilst pores can clog up, leading to blemishes. Luckily, we have the perfect solution to tackle such concerns this winter. SkinCeuticals has formulated a range of corrective serums that deeply penetrate the epidermis and dermis to transform skin at a cellular level. So, whether you’re concerned about the signs of ageing, acne, or discoloration, there’s a targeted treatment to support your skincare needs.
